i like KoT a lot but it's not that fun with 2 players. 3-4 gives the best experience.

Escape: The Curse of the Temple works a bit better on 2
Can't Stop
Pandemic: The Cure

Run, Fight, or Die!, Elder Sign and Age of War are all yahtzee-like dice rolling games with a similar roll/re-roll system as King of Tokyo. If I were to order them in terms of weight, from lightest to heaviest, Age of War is first (even simpler than King of Tokyo), then Run, Fight, or Die, then Elder Sign (games of this can take around 2 hours).

Elder Sign is a coop, if that sways your decision one way or the other.

I heard CV is a dice game that works well at 2p and has a fairly universal theme of "Life" kinda like the popular Milton Bradley (?) game. I think thats the original company anyway. Or is it Hasbro?

Whatever, check out CV.

I can second Run, Fight, or Die!

My wife loves that game, we play it once a week along with King of Tokyo

I get her to play some pretty heavy games, so we need to mix those two in for just some mindless gameplay. Otherwise she would burn out!

Technically Dice Masters is Quarriors! in other clothes. Quarriors is the original.

Check out:Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age. It is a nice dice rolling game, that I feel plays best with two.

Maybe check out Kingsburg as well. There is dice rolling every turn in that game.

If you don't need chrome then Reiner Knizia's Decathlon is actually quite fun with the right competitive spirit. Just need 8 dice and score sheets you can print from the Files section.

Another would be Alea Iacta Est/Order of the Gilded Compass. Again, plays well with higher numbers.

It required expansions to make it okay. I never played it after the fact to see how good it ended up being. The base game is lacking. I kind of wished somebody did a proper take on it that wasn't collectible.

Dice masters is widely considered superior and more refined and generally more liked theme wise. The caveat is its 2p only or 2v2. And collectable I guess.

Yeah i know that dice Masters is the Best of those two. But im not happy with the card building phase in the game and you should buy new cards to get a better deck ect ect. Thats Why i asked about Quarriors i love games where People have the same opportunities whithout buying Extra thing to the game for some type of benefits

Based on that criteria, Quarriors might be what you are looking for. If the base game doesn't seem full enough, then pick up an expansion or two.
